A letter from Booka book shop has asked us to produce a biography of local historical figure Thomas Savin.
What will we need to know? How will we find out more about Thomas Savin?
“This is one of the most important man in the history of Oswestry….. Let’s hear his story”
We wrote in our journals as Thomas told us about his early life.
The children went into role as Thomas Savin meeting David Davies. They thought about the questions they would ask. We then created the meeting that took place between them. After the meeting, we planned the railways across Wales from Oswestry.
A newspaper article had been found which said "hats were thrown into the air and healths were drunk to the victory for local enterprise. Oswestry parish church bells rang for two days. Mr Savin met with a fantastic reception at Oswestry. He was carried shoulder high through the streets of the town, accompanied by a surging crowd of cheering admirers. They called him the Railway King!" Although, some people were not happy about this new railway, they said "It's going to be noisy, smelly and too busy for our little town!"
To celebrate the coronation of King Charles III, we found out about the coronation ceremony and traditions. We also looked at invitations throughout history, and then wrote our own. To end our day of celebrations, we took part in our own coronation with the whole school, followed by a tea party in class!
